Master and Student by DragonLordFrankie
Master and Student
Chihana and Kagara, back when Chihana had her eye sight. Before Kagara defected, she looked up to Chihana and wanted to follow in her footsteps as the next commander of the Shiryu army. Big thanks to :iconsnowrukaya95: for this sketch!
The Traitor, Kagara Shimitsu  by DragonLordFrankie
The Traitor, Kagara Shimitsu
Another new character folks! Her name is Kagara Shimitsu, former student of Chihana and newest addition to the Akitoki Army. She stole Muramasa from her master and now Chihana is hellbent on reclaiming her sword and ending her traitorous student's life. I'll post a full bio later.

Big thanks to :iconeonmon: for helping me create her! It means a whole lot to me since I'm deep in the Legacy Project.
Miles is now up in my gallery and the next member of the Legacy that I upload will be a very familiar face done in a completely new way ;)

Journal History

  • Mood: Euphoric
And now, for the official unveiling of the project that I have been working on since mid November.... THE LEGACY PROJECT!!!! The Legacy Project is the collaboration between myself, :iconmarce-salami:, :iconmomokayue:, :iconwindpage:, and :iconmikakoyama: to bring to you, the people who watch me, the 10 main characters of my story The Legacy of Dixie! If you haven't already, here is a link to the first part: dragonlordfrankie.deviantart.c…

I decided to go with a silhouetting direction this time since some of the characters are new to being posted and some are old that have new looks. I might even get to try out a new coloring style if I can! I hope everyone likes it and I will be posting updates to this journal as often as I can, so stay tuned!

Right now, it has a tentative completion date of April 25th, 2015. Anything can change between now and then, so I wanted to pick a date hat would give me the most flexibility. It could be pushed forward or pushed back; just an estimate I came up with and I am honestly horrible with estimates :P And now, so you can all track the progress, here is a... progress meter.

This is not :icondragonlordfrankie: speaking, but :iconmikakoyama:.

As most of us know, currently/recently, there has been a controversy and arguement that exploded when he posted a drawing of one of his characters, Chihana. People are arguing that he made her too overpowering and that she is a Mary Sue. Also, there has been an argument between him and :iconaquariusdarkheart:. She claimed that he stole her idea of the healing sword, a weapon that her character, Kimiko, has and a weapon Chihana has. Due to these events, there are two battling sides: people who support Aqua/think Frankie is an immature/rude person/think he should develop his characters and those who support Frankie.

In my opinion, I find this whole thing a bit ridiculous. I support Frankie, myself, but I am not just supporting because he is my friend. The first thing I want to talk about is all these people judging Chihana and his other characters. You all claim that his story is unoriginal, his characters are very undeveloped, and that he doesn't listen to your critiques. Well, aren't we who have stories and characters the same in a way? I mean if someone judges your character, doesn't that make you want to protect them? You love the story and characters you created and so, does he. I am sure that he does not just ignore all your advice and listens to them.  How would you feel if you were being criticized? Also, aren't all of our characters unoriginal in a way? For example, Aqua took inspiration from her love of Naruto to create her character, Kimiko, and that would lead to other characters. Her story is not completely original, so why is Frankie being treated like he is the villain. Not all of our stories are perfect.

Now, onto the people, who think he's a douche bag and immature, you're all just judging him based upon this alter ego he built. Here, he may act like he's a cool guy, but offline, he's the opposite. Frankie isn't just some attention hog, who likes to make up stories, so people notice him. He is just a sensitive person, who had to deal with many things in his life. All he wants is for someone to love him and be there for him, just as he is willing to do for anyone of you. He has always supported all of you, so why can't you support him in his time of need? Has he ever called your art crap or talked badly about you for no reason? Of course, he hasn't. Like he says in his tagline, he is a friend to all deviants, so why can't we all be friends for him?

Anyway, I know this probably won't make much sense and you guys can argue all you want, but I don't really care. Frankie is a good friend of mine, I love him, and I hate to see people bashing on him. Thank you for reading this.

So done with this crap..(for lack of a better title:
To those of you who know DragonLordFrankie, and have seen his latest work/deviation and journal ( That just happened... ) I just thought I'd like to mention my side of the story before any of you decide to point fingers and say who the bad guy is and so on and so forth for 'attacking' him and his OC, Chihana: dragonlordfrankie.deviantart.c… Earlier a friend of mine sent me a note when they talked to Frankie about fixing his OC (which from the description alone a lot of you guys will probably agree with me his OC is way too powerful/MarySue.) Untitled Anyways while reading thru the note I noticed something oddly coincidental and that was in the mentioning of his twin blades (one of the swords in which has

I know I should not be replying to this, seeing as I am clearly vilified right now, but I felt like if I didn't, I would snap and break down. I'm not here to call anyone out of continue anything, I just feel like I need to explain some things. Over the past couple weeks, I have come under fire for my OC Chihana being a sue and being overpowered and how I only posted her bio and I stole an idea and all that. Allow me to explain; her getting that second sword came about in an RP where she was hell bend on recovering the sword that was stole from her by a student that betrayed her and she killed said student and regained it. If it had any similarities to that person's work, I apologize.

Now let me step out of my persona and bring out the person behind this account. :icondragonlordfrankie: <--- That is a persona that I use to get my characters out there because honestly I'm very embarrassed to show my work to the world. I've been picked on enough in life for it to know when to use a fake persona to get them out there. I have been told that the asshole is the real me and me showing my true colors. It honestly isn't. She has met the real me. I have friends and family on this site that has met the real me. Yes I can come across as a bit ego centric and rigid, but when you have been abused, kicked on, and disrespected throughout 26 years of your life, who wouldn't? When I am here, I get to be the person I always wanted to be, someone kinda cool who gets to act all brash, arrogant, cocky, and do anything I want because in real life, I can't. I am always expected to be a team player and if I don't like how things are going, then too bad, eat shit and like the taste of it. Whenever I fall in line and do as I'm told, everyone as all smiles, but the moment I stand up for what I believe in, it creates a huge firestorm and I am punished for it! To clarify, I am NOT talking about just on dA and what happened yesterday, I am talking about every single day in real life!

When it comes to my "overpowered" characters and my comment about doing the research, my characters are all based off of either real people that are in my life of personifications of my relationships with them and others. Chihana Shiryu is the personification of my relationship with my younger cousin. Growing up with him, he was the cool one, he got all of the girls, all of the good things happened to him with very few hiccups in between. No matter how much I tried, I couldn't catch up to him; Chihana represents that struggle I had to go through with that as I grew up. Even now, I am still trying to catch up. Allow me to tell you a personal story; I went to elementary school at a predominantly Latino school. After my second grade year, the courts ordered my mom to switch me out of schools, so I went to a school that was predominantly African-American. On my first day of 3rd grade, I was jumped by 4 boys; it continued for about 2 weeks before it stopped. That began my life of trying to please everyone and make no one mad. To escape the pain I had to endure, I began working on the Legacy of Dixie and it brought me peace. It was my rabbit hole to fall into to feel like I was important somewhere.

Again, I am not calling anyone out. I decided to take a MASSIVE risk and reveal some of the real me here to everyone on deviantArt. I am very sure that I am going to get called a liar about this as well, but at least I am trying to connect with everyone on a personal level. When I wrote Nurul that note apologizing, I was being 100% sincere. If you don't want to forgive me, I understand but to :iconaquariusdarkheart: I do sincerely apologize for what I said yesterday. Even though you said things that were really harsh, I shouldn't have reacted the way I did. It was cruel, senseless, and not right. I know that I am very much hated and vilified now but at least I can say I tried to clear the air...
  • Mood: Rage
For the first time ever, I deleted a deviation. It brought me nothing but headaches so I got rid of it. Will I upload it again? No. Everyone made their point. I'm done. I'm incredibly done.

EDIT: I talked to a close friend on the phone and she urged me to reupload it. I know that Chihana is not for everyone and people hate what I did with her, but you know what? She is my creation, my very very flawed creation. I love her and she represents the relationship between myself and my younger cousin. I could never catch up to him and I based a character off of that. She's here to stay!
